Delight in the flavors of red onion, oregano, parsley, feta cheese, and ground chicken melded into these Greek chicken burgers. Crowned with a zesty yogurt sauce, these burgers offer a scrumptious twist on the classic burger. Serve them nestled in a bun, wrapped in lettuce, or artfully placed atop a bed of greens for a protein-packed meal that sings with Greek essence.


Healthy Chicken Burger Recipe

To complement these Greek chicken burgers, I prepared a homemade yogurt sauce inspired by tzatziki. However, for the sake of convenience, you have the option to use store-bought tzatziki sauce. Additionally, while these burgers are designed with ground chicken, ground turkey can be an equally satisfying substitute.

Crafted for the epicurean in a hurry, these healthful chicken burgers burst with the essence of Greece! Expertly grilled and crowned with a refreshing cucumber yogurt sauce, these Greek chicken burgers are a culinary treasure. You can savor them nestled in a bun, wrapped in crisp lettuce, or elegantly placed atop your preferred salad.


Chicken Burgers:

  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1/4 cup red onion
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg

Yogurt Sauce (optional):

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup grated, cored cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh dill
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 grated garlic clove
  • Salt
  • Pepper

To Serve:

  • 4 burger buns
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Thinly sliced tomato
  • Thinly sliced cucumber
  • Thinly sliced red onion


  • In a small bowl or jar, combine the sauce ingredients: Greek yogurt, cucumber, parsley, dill, lemon juice, and grated garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then set aside.
  • In a large bowl, add the burger ingredients: ground chicken, red onion, oregano, parsley, garlic, feta, breadcrumbs, and egg. Use your hands to thoroughly mix the ingredients.
  • After mixing, divide the chicken mixture into four equal portions and shape them into patties with your hands.
  • Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat, then grill the patties for 5-6 minutes on each side until they reach an internal temperature of 165ºF.
  • Once the burgers are done, remove them from the grill and assemble them on buns with your choice of yogurt sauce or tzatziki, along with your preferred toppings.
  • Any leftover burger patties can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
